Mayhaw Jelly

Mayhaw Jelly
I was at The Market at Dothan Nurseries this past Friday and my Mayhaw Jelly has become my best seller, so I had to get busy making more jelly this past weekend.  It's a good thing that I kept almost all of the mayhaws that we gathered from our fruit orchard.  I put them in our freezer and remove a gallon whenever I need to make more jelly.  It's such a pretty jelly and delicious on buttered toast.  Mayhaws look like a miniature red apple and grow on a tree with very long thorns.  They ripen in May.  When our trees have a lot of red berries, we gently shake the tree and pick-up the berries off of the ground.  You'll have to try a jar of Mayhaw Jelly.  I think you will like it.  I sure do!
